MIMEsweeper was one of the first products capable of protecting organizations against unwanted content, and it is still widely used today. The vendor, Clearswift, acquired MIMEsweeper's developer, Content Technologies, from Baltimore last year, and it is good to see that re-branding and product development have happened so quickly.
Today, MIMEsweeper is not just one product, but a suite of email security applications allowing network administrators to fine-tune their defenses as required. With the MAILsweeper application, administrators can define both the routing of all emails into and out of the network, and the content policies required. Throughout, the performance of the various elements can be monitored and the appropriate action taken.
